On Tuesday, El Paso Museum of History (EPMH) officials said they are now accepting submissions from the public for the Pasos Urbanos: A Photographic Narrative of the Borderlands, a juried photography exhibit set to open at the museum later this year.
“There are always so many things happening Downtown—live music, murals, festivals, new businesses, and of course just the excitement everyday life,” said El Paso Museum of History Director Dr. Vladimir von Tsurikov. “As the City’s Museum of History, we wanted to make sure we are honoring all of the different people and experiences that make up the Downtown/Borderland identity.”
Artists, photographers and anyone from either side of the border are encouraged to submit material that captures “the vibrant culture and new developments that make downtown El Paso an exciting and dynamic space.”
“The binational component is meant to strengthen the relationship between the El Paso and Ciudad Juarez, celebrating a shared past, present, and future,” EPMH officials added via a news release
A complete description of the Pasos Urbanos contest, including information and an application to submit, is posted online.
A maximum of five photographs can submitted by October 1. Participants must be 18 years of age or older and must currently reside within 150 miles of downtown El Paso and Ciudad Juarez.
